Question about 1996 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

My husband is installing a remote starter that he got for Christmas and can't find a wiring diagram for his 1996 Chevy Silverado. We've checked the repair manuals and they don't have the areas the starter would be wired into. Also, how many ignition wires are there?

    note: by ignition switch harness they mean the wires that plug into the bottom of the steering column under the dash

2002 chevy silverado starter would start sometimes and other times everything worked but the starter did nothing husband put new starter in now it turns over fine but does not even try to start [ a small 3...

If the starter turns over, it's doing it's job. Look toward the ignition or fuel system for solutions. That broken wire just may be the culprit. It takes spark, fuel, and air intake to run.

1999 chevy blazer wiring harness diagram for remote start

Large purple wire is your starter engagement wire, I believe you will have to tie into more than that wire to get your remote start to work properly, maybe get me brand and model number so I may research more and point you in the right direction as far as installation goes.

Diagram needed

you really don't need one.....
1.Disconnect the battery
2.locate the starter. If its a v8 itll be on the driver side at the back of the engine beside the oil pan
3.there are two bolts on the bottom of the starter that you need to remove with a 9/16 socket or wrench.(support the starter when you remove the last bolt so the wires don't get broken)
4.observe the location of all of the wires attached to the starter(make a diagram so you don't forget where they go)
5.Remove the nuts that hold the wires on the starter.(make sure the ring connectors and wires are in good shape if you notice any damaged ones they should be replaced)
6. reverse procedure to install new one
..............hope this is helpfull.good luck!
